As the country phases out of quarantine and faces the aftermath of Covid-19, restaurants are looking to new models and ways of doing business to adapt.
It’s an ongoing effort, says Joe Blanton, director of sales and leasing at Capital Rivers Commercial and co-founder of Krush Burger International, in this podcast. “Even if you adapted this week, it’s quite possible you may have to re-adapt the following week,” he says. “What I believe restaurant operators should be looking into is ways they can embrace technology.”
Krush Burger, originally a food truck business and now an international quick-service restaurant brand, was honored with the Small Business of the Year Award in 2014 by the California chapter of the Small Business Administration.
Blanton joins Paul Somerhausen, founder and CEO of SactoMoFo, a food truck catering company and event organizer as well as a client of Capital Rivers, in this podcast.
